Game Optimizer– you are a game lover and you have got a lot of games installed on the computer? It is a well-known fact that games consume a lot of system resources but now thanks to a special tool integrated into Utililab System Optimizer and called Game Optimizer, you can forget these problems for good. This function optimizes the usage of RAM during the game session, turns off all unneeded system processes and allows you to achieve the maximum performance of the computer.

As for automatic optimization, just enable it and configure some settings and the program will try to free up the memory usage according to your defined rules.
Security and Privacy– practically every computer user browses the Internet, deletes some sensitive data, etc. But, unfortunately, a lot of confidential info is left after browsing the Internet (for example, accessed websites, cookies, etc.), opening different documents (for example, Microsoft Word or PDF documents), deleting secret info (it is not completely removed from the computer and can be easily recovered with the help of special programs).
In this section of the program you will find three different tools which will help you to protect your confidential and sensitive data and keep them away from the prying eyes; they are as follows- Privacy protector, Secure Delete and Secure Encryptor.
Privacy Protector– this tool allows you to scan for any privacy traces left after using Windows (for example, start menu, commands history, etc.), Browsers (i.e. cookies, history of visited websites, temporary Internet files, and so on; Utililab System Optimizer supports all modern browsers- Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.), Messengers (for example, Yahoo messenger, Skype, etc.) and Microsoft Office (i.e. Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint).
In the settings you have the possibility to configure scan options (i.e. select areas to be scanned, manage cookies, etc.).
Secure Delete– it is a well-known fact that some traces of files still remain on the hard drive after deletion and they can be easily recovered.

Items deleted using this reliable tool cannot be recovered even with the most advanced programs.

Secure Encryptor– if you have a lot of confidential documents, you can take full advantage of this very important tool; it allows you to encrypt your sensitive data, i.e. protect them with a strong and unbreakable password. Thanks to this tool, nobody will be able to access your private documents and view them.

If it is so, you have the possibility to run a performance and security scan of the system and identify those issues that slow down the computer.

Only two simple steps are required for complete removal of all duplicate files. In the first step you should select a location to be searched (for example, any folder or hard drive partition). After finishing the scan, Utililab System Optimizer will display all found duplicates and arrange them in different tabs, i.e. images, music, video, documents and compressed. The program allows you to view the size and directory of each found file. In the second step you should simply check those files that you want to be removed. That is all; after selecting the files, they will be permanently deleted.
In the settings you can specify some searching and removal options, for example, File Matching Criteria (i.e. you can define how the program will match duplicate files- the files of the same name or size, etc.), File Types (i.e. you can specify which file types will be searched for- music, video, image, etc.), Ignore List (here you have the possibility to exclude some drives, folders, etc. from the scan process), Removal (i.e. you should specify how to remove duplicate files- send them to the Recycle bin or create a backup copy before deleting them).
